Beautiful. How did you simulate the turned on headlights?

I use a photo app called Polarr - if you buy the premium version you can add layers, including various types of flashes and flares. If you then Colour Mask with the feather, if you position it right it looks like the headlights are on.

That's a really neat job.  I especially like your painting and detailing of the chassis, suspension, rear axle etc, all the underside looks very realistic.  Cheers.
